Sounds like it could either be a spun out main bearing or camshaft bearing or it could be knocking from low octane gas, depending on how loud it is. A main bearing or camshaft bearing that is spun will make an unmistakably loud cyclic noise. While, the low octane gas will cause a softer random rapid knocking sound that sounds like a babbling brook. Check for codes in the engine that might explain why there is an octane related knock, like a knock sensor not working or something like that. Good luck on finding a solution to your knocking problem.
